Eilean Righ Island For Sale
Eilean Righ comprises of approximately 240 acres of beautiful Scottish land lying in Loch Craignish in NW Scotland.

Translated from Gaelic, Eilean Righ means King's Island and although the King in question is unknown, there's been plenty other interesting owners. There was the Iron Age settlers (there's the remains of two Iron Age forts), and it was also once the home of Sir Reginald Johnston, the retired tutor to the last Chinese Emperor, Puyi (remember Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1987 film, The Last Emperor).

The latest owner, a multi millionaire London-based city trader who has owned it since 1999, has completely refurbished both the infrastructure and two houses (a converted four bedroom steading with planning permission to extend and a three bedroom farmhouse set around a central courtyard) to the highest standard.

There's stunning scenery, private beaches, sailing and sea fishing galore. Despite it being private and sheltered it is within one of the most accessible coastal locations in Scotland - it's a mere 300m off the Argyll coastline and there are two slips ways and a jetty. For jet setters, there's a large helicopter hanger. The island even has mains electricty and high speed broadband.

Admittedly, you'd need to be well off to afford this property but it could be the ultimate getaway for anyone jaded with urban life.
